ABOUT BATTLE OF THE BAY 2017

Battle of the Bay 2017 was a stop on the USA Climbing 2017/2018 National Cup Series, and it brought some of the biggest hitters around to Dogpatch Boulders on Nov 10th + 11th. While Open competitors climbed in the Qualifiers on the 10th in hopes of making it to Finals the following day for glory and a $10,000 cash purse, we also hosted a bangin’ Citizens Comp on the 11th. We reset the entire gym for climbers of all levels to come party and try their hardest on a fresh batch of boulder problems.

Battle of the Bay

Battle of the Bay 2017 was Touchstone Climbing’s first cash purse competition. THANK YOU to everyone who came out and made it such an incredible success. If you missed the action or just want to relive the magic, we’ve got a highlight reel for you:


OPEN QUALIFIERS

All Open competitors had to climb in the Qualifiers Round on Nov 10th for a chance at a top-eight slot and a place in Finals in the evening of Nov 11th.

Qualifiers consisted of 10 judged problems for each gender category. Scoring was a modified redpoint round based on tops and attempts to high point—therefore, a perfect score would be flashing every problem. Competitors had four hours to try their best to rack up as many points in as few attempts as possible.

CITIZENS COMP

We kicked off Nov 11th with our All-Levels Citizens Comp, where climbers of all abilities got to test their mettle on a brand new set of plastic classics by our amazing Touchstone Routesetting Team; the free beer, pizza, and prizes weren’t so bad either!

Congratulations to those who placed in our Citizens Comp, and thank you to everyone who competed. You can find all the scores here.


OPEN FINALS

The final throwdown had the top eight Open competitors from each gender category climbing for the crown—and a $10,000 cash purse! The Open Finals Round was an onsight format on a 5min-on/5min-off rotation, with four problems for each gender. After a nail-biting show, Margo Hayes, Alex Puccio, Brooke Raboutou, Nathaniel Coleman, Carlo Traversi, and Matt Fultz claimed their spots on the podiums.

USAC partnered with Louder Than Eleven to livestream the event. Watch the full show here:
